The construction industry is ever-evolving and with that comes a demand to prepare fleets with new technology and equipment to complete projects and overcome obstacles.
In order to compete for higher-capacity jobs, Armstrong Crane & Rigging added a new Tadano ATF 200G-5 all-terrain crane — expanding its ability to reach demand and accomplish complex projects in their service region. The company chose the 220-ton machine for its drivability and easy operation.
“Our operators really like how intuitive the AML-F Crane Control System is. The machine has a great feel,” Greg Nachtegaele said. “The ATF 200G-5 is simply a perfect all-around machine for a crane rental company that never knows what the next lift is going to be.”
- The ATF 200G-5 crane was chosen for its different setups — jib mounted, aux winch-mounted or base-plate mounted, while retaining legal axle weights.
- Due to the lift adjuster and Intarder feature, the company can operate the all-terrain crane on the steep winding roads in the Okanagan Valley, located in British Colombia.
- The Tadano all-terrain crane features a 197-foot boom and an integrated heavy lift jib.
- Armstrong Crane & Rigging has utilized the crane for cell tower, road and bridge projects.
